This easy veggie cream cheese finger sandwich recipe is ideal for kids' tea parties or last-minute guests. It can be prepared with a wide range of vegetables, and kids love it when it's made with milder, sweeter vegetables, such as carrots, cucumber, and bell peppers.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups assorted vegetables, chopped (such as English cucumber, peeled carrot, bell pepper, watercress, baby spinach, and red onion)
  • Up to 1 teaspoon dried parsley, chopped fresh chives, chopped parsley, finely chopped garlic, or finely chopped horseradish
  • 1 8-ounce container cream cheese (softened)
  • Dash salt (to taste)
  • Dash pepper (to taste)
  • 2 loaves white bread (such as buttermilk bread)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Put some of the vegetables in a food processor and partially process them. Alternate adding more vegetables/herbs and processing the vegetables so that the food processor doesn't get jammed.

  3. When the vegetables (and, optionally, the herbs) are finely diced, mix them with the cream cheese in a bowl.

  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  5. For every 2 slices of bread, spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of veggie cream cheese on 1 slice.

  6. Put the slices together, cut off the crusts, and slice the sandwich diagonally 2 times to create 4 triangle finger sandwiches.
